Clintons planning ruinous comeback

Conservatives and true Americans must not be fooled by Hillary Clinton’s seemingly failing campaign. Make no mistake, the vast Clinton machine has its ‘woe-are-us’ routine and a miraculous campaign comeback planned out perfectly so as to test its most loyal inner circles long before the general-election dance.

Cruz stands out and up

Well over 30 years removed from our last truly conservative presidential candidate, a rare opportunity to elect another presents itself in candidate Ted Cruz. Genial of nature yet fierce in conviction, Sen. Cruz needn’t be Ronald Reagan any more than Ronald Reagan needed to be Abraham Lincoln. We simply need Cruz to be Cruz.

Framers knew what they were doing

The framers of our Constitution included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The best-known reason is for this was to give Americans the right to possess firearms for self-defense against assaults and other types of physical violence.

Obama’s lone, ironic success

Russian President Vladimir Putin long ago took the measure of President Obama and found him wanting — in knowledge of global affairs, comprehension of human nature, appreciation of world history and backbone.

For Israel, nuclear weapons a last resort

Contrary to the writer’s claim in “Pursuing contradictory goals” (Web, Oct. 1) that Israel would have used the nuclear weapon in response to missiles launched by Saddam Hussein carrying nerve gas, Israel has always stressed that it would not be the first in the Middle East to use that weapon.

GOP wasting time squabbling

After six years of President Obama's failed and destructive policies, including the early troop withdrawal in Iraq and years of plotting secret deals with Cuba and Iran, it is clear that Mr. Obama deserved neither the Nobel Peace Prize nor to be elected president -- twice.

Conservatives sick of wheeler dealers

If we had a Senate majority leader who provided real leadership, the Republicans could have used reconciliation in the Senate to defund President Obama's amnesty, health-care and Planned Parenthood endeavors, giving the Democrats a dose of their own bad medicine that has harmed the lives and health of many Americans.

Politics pushed USPS into red

In a commentary piece on the U.S. Postal Service's plans to upgrade its vehicle fleet, Ken Blackwell called the Postal Service "the poster child for government waste" ("How the Postal Service continues to burn money," Web, Aug. 27). He's wrong on the merits and the facts.

Martland's treatment unsurprising

The U.S. Army discharges decorated and brave Sgt. First Class Charles Martland for having the temerity to stand up for young children in Afghanistan who are regularly raped and sexually abused by perverted old scumbags on an American military base.

We're not alone

Water deposits have been found on Mars. Really, is this such a great revelation? For years, astronomers have focused on ice formations at Mars' poles. Given the recent photographs from Voyager, we know that Pluto contains water. Common sense tells us that water is not indigenous to Earth only.

Injustice wrong in all forms

Many people who fight for the ethical treatment of animals also work to protect people, including unborn babies. Why do some just assume otherwise? Surely no one would say, for example, that people who go to bars care more about beer than babies, or that movie-goers are wasting money on movies while unborn babies die.

Shariah, Constitution incompatible

When presidential contender Ben Carson stated recently that he would not approve of electing a Muslim as president of the United States, both Republican and Democrat politicians jumped on him. Challenger Ted Cruz reminded him that the U.S. Constitution itself says there shall be no religious test for public office.

Fund, update GMD now

These days, you can't open the newspaper without seeing stories about the Iranian nuclear program ("Iranians provided own samples for nuclear site inspection," Web, Sept. 21). But as we focus on Iran, let's remember that the greater threat to the U.S. homeland comes from North Korea.

Reinstate ethical Green Beret

In World War II, America sent its finest men and women to oppose Hitler's tyranny. Had we not responded to Winston Churchill's pleas for the United States' involvement, it is conceivable that Europe, and certainly many more of the Jewish people, would have perished under the Nazis.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fox, CNN unfair in debates

Fox News is not a conservative news organization, though many of its commentators, including Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, seem to be conservatives. Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz was on Steven Colbert's "Late Show" Monday night, but when watching "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning, all the hosts mentioned was media darling Carly Fiorina being on Jimmy Fallon's show. Not once did they mention Mr. Cruz's appearance with Mr. Colbert. However, when Donald Trump was on "The Late Show," Fox News had a story on it.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Media-hound persona hurts Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is attracting a lot of attention as a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. And when he sticks to a topic such as opposition to the Patriot Act, he sounds credible. But when he veers off-topic with ad-hominem charges against fellow Republicans and others, or when he downplays the dangers of drugs, he commands media attention more for outrageous assumptions and conclusions than for accuracy.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Give refuge to religious minorities

Syrians and Iraqis are currently flooding Europe seeking a new life. Following World War II European countries allowed 20 million people from the Middle East and North Africa to enter. These people now number 50 million, and they refuse to integrate into Western societies. Most of the areas settled by these immigrants are depressed and lawless, and the immigrants want to implement Sharia law.
